is to understand the circumstances that are going on right now in terms of the compromise of the united states sovereignty by what's happening to the dollar with deficits budget to be positive so the last third of this book is solutions. what we can do as a subtitle says fighting new world order, surviving the global depression and preserving u.s. sovereignty. so the themes of this book at the last third or to give solutions and call to action for how we can organize our lives, how we can organize politically in order to fight back to say no to a global new deal. now, to get everyone's mind of around the idea of america for sale, i like to start at this way. we currently have page 24 of the book and document we have got about a 65.5 trillion what the t negative net worth. now what that means, that is according to the department treasury's own statistics. once a year the deeper and the treasury does a gap accounting and david walker, who was the head of the government accountability office actually resigned in 2008 it went on the week up to our alarming people, telling people essentially that i
moved back to the united states when i was a baby and lived there till i was five in rochester, new york. this was after it had become safe for war resisters. my father worked in a health clinic in the state, and my mother worked at a cable access channel. they both decided they preferred it in canada. my father preferred the single payer health care system. my father preferred that. my mother was working for the national film board, which is a public institution that allowed her to make the political films that she wanted to make. they left the u.s. because of stayed in canada because of the social programs. >> do you remember when you first learned of this story and it sunk in? >> in canada, you did not have to be rich to get sick. i feel i always knew the story about health care. this was explained to me as a kid. i did understand that it was unfair that people were denied access to medicine because they did not have money to pay. as a doctor, my father preferred to work in a system whereby money did not have anything to do with the care that you received. i feel like i have always k
with the united states both economic and security. the obama administration really doesn't want to revisit all of that, but president obama said on the record he understand that a new party coming to power will want to take a look at all the underlying agreements negotiated with the united states by the liberal democratic party. the big issues that will be on the table between these two leaders -- climate change, north korea, and trade. one other issue, of course, is afghanistan with the democratic party of japan came in, the prime minister decided to end a long-standing refueling operation the japanese were conducting with vessels in the indian ocean. but in exchange, the japanese government has put up funds in reconstruction aid. botin the main, this summit, the second time the two leaders have met is not going to produce any new u.s.-japanese announcement on any of the issues i discussed but it will be an opportunity for the two to discuss trade, north korea and climate change. steve: major, just a moment ago the white house office of the press secretary released something. apparently the u
, they said, take care of yourself to get reelected. >> the opposite of a democrat in the united states, the difference is a conservative, not a republican. you cannot be -- a republican if you are not against big spending. >> keep thinking that. >> here is what i would say. what i would say is, look at virginia. bob macdonald reached over, not by moderating his principles, but by saying that his principles were not only good for saying, no. he says he wants to grow the economy, but he just wants us to do it, not washington. there is a positive, republican agenda out there. we will see more of that in 2010. >> when i first opted to propose the question, this was slightly more off-base. i want to bring up the idea. i came down here from boston, where republican was a dirty word. not because of the belief system but the reputation. my question is how much opinion is placed in the word, republican or democrat. and how much is in the ideology. how much will this affect things over the last year? how much has that changed? >> it is an interesting attachment to the word republican, as there i
. . every industrialized country has that system except the united states. we are going to change that. national polls show that the majority of doctors and the majority of americans favor a single payer system. that is why six months ago, we went to capitol hill. when senator baucus opened that first day of hearing in may, i stood up and said, excuse me, sir, why have you taken single payer off the table? why have you not allowed one doctor testify for single payer? baucus ordered us arrested. one by one, margaret, kevin, carol, and four others stood up and confronted baucus. and one by one we were all arrested and charged with disruption of congress. in a plea deal earlier this year, we agreed not to disrupt congress throughout the end of this year. since that day in may, baucus and harry reid in the senate, and nancy pelosi and steny hoyer in the house have cobbled together incomprehensible legislation. it is convoluted and confusing. but one thing is clear -- president obama and the democrats have cut a dirty deal with the health insurance and pharmaceutical industries. obama took
in this new media. when somebody stands up in the congress of the united states during the state of the union and said, " ." >> nobody in the caucus supported what he did -- "you lie." >> nobody in the caucus supported what he did. the civility is not news. we try not to bash the media, hillary. we had an earlier conversation that talk about immigration reform where a truly bipartisan group of senators get together and all slated then, not quite, but there were in large number of democratic and republican senators working on it. that was in 2007. john mccain was simultaneously running for president. he and senator kennedy were the two leaders, the co-authors of the bill. you never saw them together in public however. kennedy said to mccain, look, we cannot show up in tv cameras together or you will lose new hampshire. it is how the press promotes incivility. >> the sense of being in the political minority, the only way you get hurt is to be no easier and more obnoxious. clearly, democrats, we did that -- we talked a lot about this during george bush's presidency. now republicans are doing a t
president obama has held frequently here in the united states, a question and answer session. >that kind of thing does not happen in china. the president's words were blocked online and the event shown only on regional tv. he told the crowd that he is a supporter of non-century ship, adding that he kills a free flow of information only strengthens society. >> the more freely information flows, the stronger the society becomes because then citizens of countries around the world can hold their own government accountable. i have a lot of critics of the united states o can say all things about me. i think that makes our democracy stronger. >> he then moved to beijing with the chinese leader. his host greeted him warmly and the president used his face-to- face meeting to echo his team. >> we do not seek to impose any system of government on any other nation. but we also don't believe that the prciples that we stand for are unique to our nation. these freedoms of expression and worship, access to information and political participation, we believe, are universal rights. >> president obama says
hnology is more important than ever in driving the united states economy and also 33 percent saying united states will be the global tech leader and a lot of americans think we will not. why is that? >> there's good reason to be concerned. it's not so much that america's innovation pro west is lagging but that the rest of the world is catching us. the recession has not helped with unemployment at ten percent we have good minds not contributing to the economy and we've seen anybody incorporate america has seen a lot of projects and r and d spending cut back as companies try to trim costs as their top line as shrunk so the survey captures the notion that both in the long-term and short-term there's things to be concerned about. > the first paragraph of the story says by most measures, america remains the world leader in technology achievement. consider the 2009 nobel prize winners of the 13 people honored nine were america's. not bad, right? >> but the nobel is a lagging indicator that people earn that typically at the end of their career for work that took place in many cases years and years pri
the united states and india can strengthen the global economic recovery, promote trade that creates jobs for both our people and pursue growth that is balanced and sustained. as nuclear powers we can be full partners in preventing the spread of the world's most deadly weapons, securing loose nuclear materials from terrorists, and pursuing our shared vision of a world without nuclear weapons. >> india and america are separated by distance but bound together by the values of democracy, rule of law and respect for fundamental human freedoms. >> reporter: there's also some hard cash involved in this. american businesses are looking at india and seeing dollar signs because as you look at their infrastructure rebuilding, ports, airports, roads, etc., the chamber of commerce predicts they could over the next five years, u.s. companies could make $500 billion. this is also a good deal. >> what do both sides get out of this state visit? >> reporter: i think the united states gives india what it wants which is recognition that it is a very important country in the world right now, that in spite of
. >> i am looking at this from the threat that this poses to the united states. i think it is unwise for the president to move these individuals and these trials into a civilian court in new york city. trace: security concerns are not the only issue. consider the context for millions of americans who live and work in new york. this decision has profound and personal implications for them because this was their city that was attacked. it was their family and friends who died. while some of those most affected will no doubt lineup to seek justice exacted on those accused of the crime, others argue the suspects and should never be allowed to set foot anywhere near the sacred earth of ground zero, where so many lives were lost. jamie colby has more reaction from family members. first, catherine herridge as live in washington. what is the effect of trying these suspects in civilian court? >> thanks. prosecutors in new york must begin anew. charges must be brought, the motions and the hearings. the militant -- the military courts are now null and void. once transferred, the five men, inclu
later, after the pentagon papers, erwin griswold, the solicitor general of the united states, who argued the pentagon papers case on behalf of the nixon administration, wrote a story for "the washington post" saying that in fact there was no national security issues whatsoever, and that he as a lawyer had to use every bit of ingenuity and creativity to even make an arguable case pits if anyone wants to read that, i am sure the attorneys in this room would. "the washington post, irwin griswald. you can check out on nexis lexus. no national security issues of all. >> pennsylvania is an elected state at the federal level, as far as appointments. but every once in awhile, it gets played out as to whether pennsylvania should go to some combination -- excuse me -- appointed intellect. i'm going to ask and academic, john, to talk first about that topic. where do you think it should wind up? should it stay the way it is? judges close to home like county judges, are they electable in the sense that people know that? where is it if you go statewide -- or is it if you go statewide? >> at the local

of the population. harris: that radical imam was kicked out of the united states, and now we find out that this shooter at fort hood had communication with him. what was going on between them? >> what we know is that there were between 10 and 20 e-mails cent between major nidal malik hasan and the imam in yemen. what we do not know is if he responded. the major issue is how was it that someone in the military who was trying to contact someone over there who supported the war against the western military, why it was not kicked upstairs. one question that people are asking today is that anyone investigate? no one at this time is stepping forward to say that he was contacted. that is going to be the question. was there a failure to confront? was that failure within leadership or the intelligence community to understand the significance of the attempted contact between nidal malik hasan and the imam in yemen. harris: a barely many classmates remember nidal malik hasan on these presentations that he would do back in medical school. you have heard about one of his powerful and presentations

, the united states has been using a base technology to create vaccine. while it is safe and effective, it's a slow-moving process. across europe, vaccine developers are using the faster process of incorporating the million sales to grow the vaccine. as we begin to explore cell-based technology, i would pose the question will there be an adequate fda approval for this new vaccine? i'm also interested in hearing in the vaccine manufacturers from how they ramped up reduction in some cases to ten times their normal production schedule. we know that production of a delayed for h1n1, a harmful but relatively moderate virus compared to something more lethal like the spanish flu. but in the case of a stronger virus, the higher fatality rate, what our country be able to produce enough vaccine for everyone in a short time. here it so i look forward to questioning the witnesses, welcome them again, learning more about how we can improve vaccine reduction in our country and again thank the chairman for this joint an important hearing. i yield back. >> thank you ms. eshoo. gentleman from pennsylvania,
in asia. >> the united states does not seek to contain china. on the contrary. the rise of a strong and a prosperous china can be a source of strength for the community of nations. gwen: and in afghanistan -- >> there is now a clear window of opportunity for president karzai and his government to make a new compact with the people of afghanistan. gwen: while on the home front, sarah palin turns best selling author. >> alaska and michigan have so much in common, with the hockey moms and the fishing. gwen: but what else does she have in mind? covering the week, karen tumulty of "time" magazine, david sanger of "the new york times," doyle mcmanus of "the los angeles times," and john dickerson of "slate" magazine and cbs news. >> celebrating 40 years of journalistic excellence, live from our nation's capital, this is "washington week" with gwen ifill, produced in association with "national journal." corporate funding for "washington week" is provided by -- >> the john hopkins global m.b.a., integrating global expertise with international understanding to develop leaders for a better wor
. those are things that are are unpopular. and he's a president of the united states being told by the military, mr. president, we can't defend those outposts and we need more people to do a countersurge insurgency. and i guess it these are correct and they puts 43,000 troops in, imagine the progressiveness, with the troops, if you don't advance health care. i think he'll find 10,000 and train the army because he's politically unsustainable with his base, if he puts in 43,000 troops and prosecutes afghanistan during a water with afghanistan as president, i think he'll have a democrat primary and that we'll have a substantial split mountain democrat party, if that's what he does. and i would argue this -- for our party, and the tensions between our kind of economic votes and our religious conservatives, the fact that the energy in republican party is about spending and deficit, if we're so inept we can't take these people and make them part of a new coalition, they we oughting to nothinged. the -- this are 24% of the people in this country who say they would likely vote for a thi

, matthew hoh says he has lost understanding of and confidence in the strategic purpose of the united states presence in afghanistan. "is not how ware fighting the war, but why." evan, what you make of that resignation? >> it is disturbing. the state department is not a player out there. i don't know what his circumstances, but they need every state department person taking get out there. the military is running the show, and that is an imbalance. counterinsurgency is as much a civilian, the state department, nation-building thing as it is a military thing, and the military is doing all of it. >> jonathan, anything you on when the president will come to a decision? -- anything new on when the president will come to a decision? >> he is meeting with his advisers on friday. what you are sharing increasingly is mcchrystal lite, which is that he will probably answer more troops into afghanistan, but probably not the 40,000 mcchrystal wants to see. >> charles? >> we are having these debates about the matter of the strategy. at the heart of this is an issue that david brooks raced in the friday "n
and with the problem which is that the goals of pakistan are not the same as the goals of the united states. pakistan wants an afghanistan that is pliable which means they have supported the afghan taliban and supported the taliban to keep afghanistan on edge, to give them strategic depth. we need the pakistanies to cooperate with us. we need them to get tougher on terrorism. and, yet, they don't see their interests as exactly the same. how you support the pakistani government and try to get the pakistani army to do something but deep down they don't believe it is in their national interest is really in many ways the central problem in the afghanistan area. >> michael, despite what is currently happening in western pakistan against the taliban since 2001, pakistan's main focus which fareed eluded to is on an eastern boarder with india. is there any full cooperation with afghanistan? >> this is what america needs to understand. that u.s. troops are bleeding and dying in afghanistan. it's throes do with jihad. far less to do with osama bin laden and al qaeda. and almost everything to do with pakistani
. >> i know that the united states has been disengaged from many of these organizations in recent years, so let me be clear, those days have passed. >> reporter: the united states and asia are ireasingly interdependent. the u.s. has borrowed hundreds of billions of dollars from china and japan. in turn, their economies are reliant on the big consumer appetite of americans and china in particular, where the president will travel tomorrow, is key on security issues like iran and north korea. >> asia as a region is more important to the united states from a trade and security perspective than perhaps any other region of the world. >> reporter: but as the president travels the region this week, his agenda is partly overshadowed by the looming decision on afghanistan. allies are anxious to know what the administration's strategy will be. aides say additional national security meetings are a possibility upon the president's return, but mr. obama promises a decision soon. >> i recognize that there have been critics of the process. they tend not to be folks who i think are directly involved in
: good morning. yes, had there are deep points of disagreement between the united states and china. both presidents attempted to address critical issues while walking a delicate line. president obama and chinese president president hu engine take you appear ready to take on the big he is problems together. >> we know the relationship goes far beyond any single issue. >> reporter: following hours of talks, both sides stressed the importance of a united front and agreed to combat a host of issues from the economy and climate change -- >> we are creating a joint clean energy research center and have achieved agreements on energy efficiency. >> reporter: -- to nuclear threats from north korea and iran. >> iran has an opportunity to present and demonstrate its peaceful intention, but about it fail, there will be consequences. >> reporter: despite the new pledges of cooperation, it's clear both sides are still divided on several issues that won't be resolved during president obama's first visit. >> our relationship going forward will not be without disagreement or difficulty. >> reporter: that
's income in the united states actually declined during the bush recovery. so our working families are trying to recover, not just from one recession but two. this is not just a short-term issue but about stimulus it's a long-term issue about where we are headed with this economy and i do think that we need to turn more of our attention to that. i think that we need to do much more to give small business access to loans again so they can start hiring again. we haven't done a good enough job at that. we really do need to turn our focus in a very meaningful way to mainstream. >> as you may say, he says "we" we're being polite. does the president's team need to did a better job? >> sure. i think that we all need to did a better job. i voted against the t.a.r.p. funding because i thought that we weren't holding the financial community accountable enough for how that money was being spent. so i think we've got to look now at what more we can do, both sherrod and michael made the point, we need make sure business gets access to credit. we need to have a manufacturing policy. we need to d
proposes the united states will win the war. as it stands, there are 68,000 u.s. troops in afghanistan, and there's every indication today that mr. obama will announce he plans to deploy an additional 30,000 to 35,000 u.s. troops. back in august, general stanley mcchrystal, the top u.s. commander in if afghanistan, argued that a troop increase was essential, and that the u.s. had a window of a year or less to stabilize the country before the cause would be lost. today at the white house, spokesman robert gibbs gave a broad preview of the president's speech. >> the president will reiterate the importance of why we're there. but also, by all means, very early on acknowledge the tremendous cost and sacrifice to our men and women in uniform. >> as the white house prepares for tomorrow night's address, there is great anticipation in afghanistan where u.s. troops are ratcheting up the fight with taliban and al qaeda forces for much of the year. and tamron, u.s. troops have been waiting for this decision ever since august when the top u.s. commander may h made his initial request. >> and davi
for the you u.s.? >> the united states does not seek to contain china nor does a deeper relationship with china mean a weakening of our bilateral alliances. the rise of a strong and pros puss china can be a -- prosperious china can be a source for both nations. brian: here to expand on that, gordon chang, author of "the coming collapse of china." gordon, why would friendliness be interpreted as softness? >> they just see it as a sign of weakness. in february secretary clinton said human rights was not an essential part of the dialogue between the united states and china. and then the chinese have become less cooperative on iran, north korea, climate change, you name it. maivelgt, the chinese felt so bold after that statement that just one month later they sent their ships to harass urs in international -- ours in the international waters. there's a direct link between human rights and the security of united states. brian: in 2002 president bush goes to china. at which time he talked about religious freedom, you need the chance -- he was able to talk live on national television to the
followers, but he is the president of the united states of america, we need to question what he's doing, but i'm trying to give him a good shot and hope that that didn't impact him. sean: i think we've given him a good shot. you know, you reach a lot of women on "the view." you have a huge audience out there. and by the way, congrats on the emmy award. >> thanks. thank you. sean: families are in trouble. unemployment, if you really add it up, it's closer to 17%. >> 14% in my home state. sean: it's frightening. women look up to you, they reach out to you. what do you say to people, my husband lost a job, i lost a job, debt is through the roof, we're passing it on to our kids and grandkids. how do you feel about that aspect of obama? >> i have this fear in the back of my mind, and quite possibly it could be because i'm up all night with feedings of a baby and i have time to think about things beyond the normal time frame necessary, but i have a feeling, are they letting things get so bad that then we are begging for the government to help us out? sean: well, the government has taken over
's been eight years. i love the military. i believe in the united states cause in afghanistan and in iraq. but that's a separate story. suicides are at an all time high. that's real. hasan's situation, again, is the sociopathic loser who seeks to inflict injury and pain on others. >> doesn't have anything to do with post-traumatic stress or anything why did he do it? >> because the yankees won. because it's raining today. bill: why do these people do it. >> because they seek to make specifics comport with their bigger themes. their societal themes. they want a story that has a moral to the story. bill: it's bs. >> in this case it is absolutely. >> geraldo, everybody. up next, colonel ralph peters on the fort hood assassin. later, the authors of a new book sarah palin have exclusive details about the speech she wasn't able to give or allowed to give on election night. those reports after these messages. lt. colonel wrath peertsd, the author of the book the war after armageddon. colonel peters column on the for the hood massacre will appear in the "new york post" tomorrow. you heard bernie
. >> in the name of the united states of america i christen the new york. brian: the idea to melt the steel from the collapsed world trade center towers and use it to make a naval ship came from the city's former governor, george pataki. >> we would be showing that new york is back strong. and the symbol of the freedom of our great people and our great country. >> in 2002 the knave yea long with the louisiana shipbuilders began inspecting the steel from the world trade center site that was removed from ground zero, then truck it had to a landfill in staton island. they found the steel was strong enough to be used for the stem of the massive ship and went to work. 7.5 tons was used to help build the bow of the 25,000-ton vessel. in august of 2005, shipbuilders were forced to take an unscheduled break. the incomplete vessel was anchored on the mississippi river just west of new orleans when hurricane katrina struck. the u.s.s. new york cost $1 billion to build, is 684 feet long and 105 feet wide it can carry a crew of 360 sailors and up to 800 marines who can be delivered to shore by helicopters a
, mainly that? >> john, this is a horrible mistake by holder. if you try him in a civil court in the united states in a criminal trial, the very first question is, were his miranda rights vie lated if -- violated? they threatened to kill his family and water boarded him 87 times. you can get john mccain to say one question, do you consider water boarding torture, yes. was my client water boarded 187 times was he tortured? yes. khalid sheikh mohammed tortured said john mccain. risking this having thrown out of the court? i don't know, would you throw it out of the court? this is a war crime he committed, not a crime in the united states against individual flat americans. >> why is obama letting it go by? >> i don't think they thought this through. this is an attorney general that is familiar with courtroom procedures. and he is examing this. suggesting that there is evidence that has not been presented. actually, they admitted his guilt before he was water boarded. and why should we be afraid to put the american trial system the stpwhorld it speaks -- the world? it speaks well at us. they lo
thoughts, first of all, about this decision to bring these key gitmo detainees to the united states for trial in new york city? >> it's a phenomenally bad decision on many, many levels and i suspect a decision based on a mix of politics and a desire to pander to, sort of the self-righteous liberal, setting the stage and putting the bush-cheney years on trial again. it's in a sense, i think what we're unfortunately about to do is open up years of a side show here in new york that's going to be very painful and also, going to be very damaging ultimately. it's going to provide a great deal of public relations spin to our adversaries overseas. >> i know you talked to people inside the intelligence community, the place where you once worked. how are they responding about this? >> well, the good thing about the cia, they just march on. they just get on with it. and regardless of what administration is there, that's the job that they do. i think, unfortunately, look, from a security standpoint, when we-- there have been some talk, even since holder's decision that bringing mohammed and the
